On May 18th, the Brick Store Museum will present its May Third Thursday Talk, welcoming local author Helen Rivas Rose to speak about her experiences writing “Brave: A Painfully Shy Life” and the work she has done to create the Center for Social Isolation Relief at 5:30pm in the Museum Program Center. A generous donor (who wished to remain anonymous) has made it possible for the Museum to offer this lecture for free to all attendees (typically, the Museum’s Third Thursday Talks are free to Museum Members, and $10 per person for general admission). Light refreshments will be served.
“We are really looking forward to this talk,” Museum Director Cynthia Walker said. “It’s a subject close to my heart, and the Museum wants to highlight the great work being done by members of our community. Helen’s is a great example of that.”
“From Brave Memoir to the Center for Social Isolation Relief” will be followed by “Maine State Experiences” by Eliot Cutler on June 15; and “Voting Down the Rose: Women’s History Panel” by Anne Gass on July 20. The Third Thursday Talks series is generously supported by the Maine Humanities Council.
